In a typical Hotel 57% of the energy spend is HVAC and Domestic Hot Water, 25% of this is typically wasted energy. The opportunity to optimise HVAC and Building energy Management Systems exists in almost every hotel, providing a very quick payback period for the organisation paying the energy bills.
We work with hoteliers providing technology and expertise to minimise the wasted energy and ensure that their facilities are running as efficiently as they can be with minimal capital expenditure.
Optimised Hotels scales with the size of your hotel and the energy consumed, which is then directly linked to an enablement and annual fee to ensure your hotel is not only optimised, but remains this way for the long term.
We understand that most hotels have two major costs in their business, these being people and energy. Unfortunately, both are increasing costs for the hospitality sector and costs that can soon impact the bottom line if not managed effectively. It is predicted that energy costs could double over the next 15-20 years which is why we believe now is a great time to ensure your hotel is operating as efficiently as it can with the assets and systems that you have today.
The 24-hour operation of hotels means that ‘turning off’ out of hours is not always an option and creative ways of ‘optimising’ the hotels performance is critical to minimising cost and maximising performance. Within the hospitality sector, energy costs may only be a small percentage of turnover, but reducing them can directly increase profits. Money saved on energy wastage goes straight to the bottom line which makes businesses more competitive and with rising energy prices, this is more important than ever.
Energy bills can contribute to between 5-10% of the total operating costs in most hotels
Regardless of whether your facility has undertaken extensive energy saving initiatives or this would be the first, we are confident that the savings will exist.
We will review the BeMS operation including; time schedules setpoints and control strategies along with any energy consumption data that will help us identify where energy is being wasted. We will also review the physical HVAC plant and identify areas of savings from assets configured incorrectly, equipment in manual and areas that require maintenance or repair. All of which will then be turned into a strategy agreed with the client and documented to get your hotel back on track.
Integrating the BeMS system with the Hotel’s booking system can also help avoid un-necessary energy usage through control of the HVAC in the bedrooms when unoccupied.
